Currency

Morocco uses the Moroccan Dirham.

Monzo users pay the Mastercard exchange rate with no added fees.

Change is relatively rare so whenever possible, try to break your bigger notes into smaller notes — this is much easier in large department stores and international chains.

Card usage

Debit card readers are relatively uncommon in Morocco. Some upscale restaurants and bars, as well as large supermarkets like Carrefour, will allow you to pay by card, but you should always carry cash.

ATMs

ATMs in Marrakesh, Tamraght and Agadir seem to generally support Monzo cards. ATMs are common throughout the country and any mid-sized town has at least one. They generally only dispense Dirhams but there are a few in Marrakesh that will dispense other currencies.

There are ATMs in the arrivals hall at Marrakesh Airport, but they don’t seem to support Monzo cards. You can exchange GBP in the arrivals hall.

Payment and withdrawal limits

All Monzo cards have some payment and withdrawal limits. To check yours before you leave, go to your Profile section of the app and tap on Limits.

Crowdsourced merchant data

As a less popular tourist destination than many countries, the Monzo merchant data is often incorrect (eg. the map shows the wrong location or the name of the place is not correct). Please submit improvements to this data so it can get better for future visitors.
